C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  A thousand fears still overawe when she appears.  1
  Shall Nature, erring from her first command, self-preservation, fall by her own hand?  2
  The radiant sun sends from above ten thousand blessings down, nor is he set so high for show alone.  3
  What we frankly give, forever is our own.  4
  Who would with care some happy fiction frame, so mimics truth it looks the very same.  5
